Restorative Schools Overview

Next Date: 
Thursday, October 4, 2018 -
8:30am to 4:00pm

1201 17th St. NW
The Charles Sumner School Museum

This one-day experiential workshop will introduce teachers, administrators, school staff, students and all those who support them to Restorative Justice concepts and practices. Participants will explore the continuum of restorative practices, through experiencing pro-active circles for strengthening relationships and social-emotional skills. More fundamentally, participants will come to see the restorative approach as a means of shifting school culture and climate as well as addressing systems of power and oppression. This overview will conclude with a planning session and information on how to receive additional support. Absent additional training, this workshop alone does not equip participants to facilitate any specific restorative process. This workshop can serve as a prerequisite to any of the below listed trainings for which one is required.

Educators, administrators, and staff who work with K-12 students attending District of Columbia public schools and public charter schools will be given priority registration.
